Chancellor of the Republic, Sheev Palpatine is an increasingly popular figure that appears to be staunchly allied with the Jedi Order. He is also closely tied to Senator Padmé Amidala, as both hail from Naboo, and continues to take a keen interest in the activities and future career of young Anakin Skywalker, Jedi apprentice to Obi-Wan Kenobi. On the surface, Palpatine, like many of his political peers, accepts a galactic war as a grim inevitability and begrudgingly accepts the emergency powers his office is given as a result.
